Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment in Nigeria

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when the blood vessels inside the retina gets damaged as a result of uncontrolled sugar in diabetics. The condition can develop in anyone who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In early stages, diabetic retinopathy may hardly cause any noticeable symptoms. Hence a diabetic patient should get a comprehensive eye examination regularly so as to prevent any further complications like retinal detachment, vitreous haemorrhage, glaucoma or loss of vision at the later stage.

Common Symptoms

As the condition of diabetic retinopathy progresses, you may experience:

  • Blurred, double or distorted vision
  • Increased sensitivity to glare and difficulty seeing at night
  • Impaired color vision
  • Vision loss


Careful management of your diabetes is the best way to prevent vision loss due to diabetic retinopathy. In any case, if you are a diabetic or if you have a family history of diabetes running down your genes, we would recommend you to get your eyes examined, atleast once a year - even if your vision seems fine.
